One adult and four male youths are facing charges following a rash of car thefts Sunday.
The crime spree occurred between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 10:40 p.m. when the suspects stole three vehicles. All three vehicles (a Honda CRV, a Lexus ES350, and a Pontiac G5) were running when the thefts occurred, with two of them left unlocked.
Winnipeg police observed the stolen Lexus and Pontiac in the area of Raleigh Street and Kimberley Avenue Sunday night. While attempting to evade police the vehicles collided into a snow bank and into a parked car, and the suspects tried to flee the area on foot.
The suspects are facing numerous theft and property related offences. Police are still searching for a sixth suspect.
